Baked Eggs in Avocado

I can’t believe I’ve never thought to bake an egg inside an avocado before. The hole that the avocado pit leaves is the perfect size for an egg. Here’s how The Family Kitchen says to do it:

Rub a skillet with a light coating of oil and place the avocado slices on top. Crack an egg in the center of each avocado. Turn the skillet up to medium heat and place a lid over the skillet and allow it to cook for two to three minutes. Remove with a spatula, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.

Personally, I would probably flip the avocado over and let the top brown for a minute before removing from the pan. Either that or I would peel the avocado and cook it egg-in-a-hole style.

Either way, an interesting new thing to try at breakfast. [Neatorama]

Holy calories, Batman! Now take that, cover it with ground sausage, breading, and then fry. You could call it a California Scotch Egg

I can see why you’d think that. But while not exactly diet food, half an avocado is about 115-125 calories and an egg is about 90 calories, so not quite scotch egg level yet. (Plus, avocados are “good” unsaturated fat.)

Cool! I do the same thing with an egg in bread. I use a cup to ‘cookie cutter’ a circle in the middle of the bread. In a skillet on low heat I put some butter and when it’s melted I rub both side of the bread with it and let it toast. While its toasting, crack the egg and flip it when its ready. slap so ketchup on that. ultimate breakfast!!

[...] Baked Eggs in Avocado These were the only casualty of the bunch. Not only did I complicate things by adding coppa and pepper jack cheese (delicious, yes, but it increased the cooking time), I decided to cook them in a muffin tin. Do not, I repeat, do not, do this – it left each avocado half sporting a muffin-shaped egg-white tail. Not a good look. [...]
